    Purple Granite was the third and final test of the Grapple series also failed to produce anywhere near the required yield. The scientists assured the government that if they were able to re- evaluate the data and redesign the weapon, that another test series ahead of an impending test-ban, would enable them to produce the required results. The "stop-gap" Orange Herald device was rushed into service with the RAF in 1958 to be delivered by the V-bomber force.
